North Devon Ramblers has just published its May to October walks programme and would like to invite walkers in the north of Devon to join them for a free sample walk or two to whet their appetite.

Group chairman Joan Long, said: "Our new programme offers 50 walks ranging from a three mile 'nice and easy' strolls at Bishops Tawton, East Down, Winsford, Trentishoe Down and Hatherleigh through to more strenuous 10 to 12 mile walks on Exmoor, Dartmoor and the South West Coast Path.

"We even have an event on Dartmoor to celebrate Devon Ramblers' 50th anniversary where we will meet up with other Ramblers groups on Hookney Tor.

"Other special events are the Lorna Doone Festival walks and 'Walk the City Week' in September. We are a friendly crowd and I think that we offer something for everyone."

Joan added: "Our volunteer leaders will have pre-walked each route, so if potential walkers want to contact us for information prior to their first outing we would welcome their email or call."
